Two years ago I needed to check out from Donald Trump. I took a break from social media, and have never gone back. You might want to consider doing the same. more

Given all that is wrong with football, I might have to stop mocking soccer. But I’ll probably just stick with baseball instead. more

Outraged by comments from Bill Clinton, liberal Democrats are coming to the defense of Monica Lewinsky, but not Paula Jones or Juanita Broaddrick. It’s a symptom of what’s wrong with the party. more

Gubernatorial candidate Kelda Roys got the most votes in a straw poll at the Democratic Party’s state convention last weekend. But she’s been out of state office for a few years now. In today’s anti-incumbent climate, that should work in her favor. more

Americans seem to be believe that free parking is a fundamental right. It’s not. If you can afford a car at all — gas, insurance, maintenance — nine bucks a month is not unreasonable for parking. more

Chronic wasting disease was first discovered in Wisconsin in 2001. Walker’s administration has steadily reduced testing, with disastrous results. Now that it's an election year, he’s proposing measures that should have been in place for years. more

After 20 years in the same house, Dianne and I are selling our house. That means getting rid of 20 years of accumulated stuff. It’s a good thing. more

On April 18 Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill offering a $100 per child tax rebate and a weeklong sales tax holiday on school supplies. It’s obviously an election ploy. But it won’t work. more
